Tauntaun Sleeping Bag!

I saw this at Crooks and Liars:

Slumber in the Belly of the Beast

In the sub-zero wasteland of the planet Hoth, only the strong survive... and of course those lucky Jedi protected by the thick skin of a Tauntaun. Now after exhaustive movie viewing research and analysis ThinkGeek Labs has isolated the exact synthetic compounds needed to re-create Tauntaun fur. What have we done with this supreme knowledge? Created a Tauntaun sleeping bag of course.


I know it's a joke and all, and I'm way too old for this kind of thing, but this is fucking cool!

The best part:

Product Features

* Classic Star Wars sleeping bag simulates the warmth of a Tauntaun carcass
* Built-in embroidered Tauntaun head pillow
* Glowing Lightsaber zipper pull
* Great for playing pretend "Save Luke from the Wampa" games
* Teach your children about the best Star Wars movie ever
* Fully Licensed Lucasfilm™ Collectable
* Fits children (and small adults)
* 100% Polyester construction, Machine washable
* Exterior Dimensions - 32" x 60"


If only they had this when I was a kid. :lol:

The best part? Thinkgeek received such a massive response for the product they are actively seeking permission from Lucasfilm™ for permission to begin making and selling them. The origional is of course just an arts project one of the thinkgeek staffers put together for April Fool's day.

They better make that in my size... That is fucking great! I swear, you will see pictures of me in that if it is at all possible. :D

I'd received the email with that in it and hadn't even considered it an April Fool's Day prank. Considering a lot of the stuff they sell on their site it's not far fetched at all.

I'm going to have to check and see if their bacon in a squeeze bottle was fake too. A co-worker of mine was going to order some for another co-workers birthday. :)

It's the lightsaber zipper pull that puts it over the top.

:shock: If those things hit the market I have to get it for my girlfriend's kid. If he doesn't know what it is... I have quite a bit of educating to do.

I see we're rancing around the "Want to see my lightsaber" line and the "its cold out, can I sleep in you?" one.
